Actually, badminton shops (like badminton)
is not that popular.
Not too many around.
But the shops in Jp got full line Yones items,
as compare to badminton shops in China, Hong Kong or Thailand.
(Full range of Racket size 3u/4u/G345....)

And that got the Yonex and Gosen Stringing machine too,
which you will not see in HK and China shops.
(Around US$9 for labor)
Racket 30% off and String 10% off official Yonex price.

But some of them are up in the building, quite hard to find.
(Even with address, Japanese don't know where they are.)
There is a Windor is just one block off Shinjuku Prince Hotel.
July and Jan is the big sale month!
50% off on some items !
1-3-15 West Shinjyuku, Shinjyuku, Tokyo.
Or the shuttle House in Osaka, Namba.

Everytime I went I spend at least an hour on each chain.
I got most of my rackets and verycool shirts there.

The Shinjuku branch is easier to find. Other branches of Windsor is hard to find. I also had a hard time visiting the shops initially. After a while, i got used to the small lanes already. Dont really find it hard anymore.
